OverviewOverview

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is an action-adventure game that puts you in the role of treasure hunter Nathan Drake. You head to Nepal looking for the lost city of Shambala, unfortunately, you're not the only one looking for it. On your journey, you'll encounter the well-armed private military group of Zoran Lazarević who will stop at nothing to find the lost city of Shambala.

Like the other games of the Uncharted series, play is a mix between combat and puzzles. Combat is required to get through Zoran's private military who block you at every step, while puzzles are required to find more clues into the passage of Shambala. When solving puzzles, you use the notes of Marco Polo and his lost fleet to progress onward. The game includes puzzles such as finding correct locations, enabling switches in order, and translating symbols.

While many of the systems and mechanisms of Uncharted 2 are the same as Uncharted, the game expands on each of these systems providing more engaging puzzles, combat, and traversal providing players with an engaging experience.
